NZ to get native Microsoft Teams calling

New Zealand (NZ) is set to get native Microsoft Teams calling by July 2021 – this feature allows you to replace your telephony solution with Microsoft Teams using a Microsoft ‘Calling Plan‘. I really didn’t see this one coming, but its a welcome addition to the existing available options.

Microsoft Teams calling for NZ further reduces the barrier to using Microsoft Teams as a telephony replacement solution for New Zealand businesses. Microsoft effectively becomes your telco, and a one stop shop for your telephony requirements. This simplifies the setup and migration to a Microsoft Teams calling solution. This reduced complexity will make it easier for businesses to adopt and is likely an easy decision for customers already using Microsoft 365 services.

If you have an aging PABX or want to upgrade an existing cloud-based telephony solution to Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Teams calling for NZ might be the solution for you. Microsoft can also help you to bring your existing numbers over to Microsoft Teams using a process known as ‘Number Porting’ – This allows you to maintain number continuity and not have to advertise new numbers to your customers and suppliers.

If you would like to learn more about the options to bring calling to Microsoft Teams, take a look at Microsoft Teams Calling Options. This article will take you through all of the options available and some of the pros and cons of each.
